What is Echo360?
Echo360 is a simple presentation capture tool that enables you to create video presentations for your students. You will find Echo360 recording equipment installed in over 70 teaching spaces across campus.
- In larger lecture theatres, you will find a simple desktop link that allows you to manually control a capture appliance, enabling you to record your classroom. Here is a list of teaching spaces equipped with echo360 recording facilities.
- In smaller lecture theatres, you will find a simple Echo360 software application called Personal Capture. Personal Capture allows you to manually record audio, screen capture, and a webcam, then publish your recordings for student viewing.
- You can also download the Echo360 Personal Capture software to your desktop or laptop for capturing presentations outside the lecture theatre.
Your recorded presentations are automatically processed and made available to students via the Echo360 Active Learning Platform link located in either the Unit Orientation or Unit Resources section of your unit.
It's important to know that recordings are stored for a maximum of 7 years. Files must be downloaded locally for long term storage.
Remember echo360 is automatically setup for you and your current units based on your Moodle enrolments. When a unit is setup in Moodle a matching echo360 unit profile is automatically created. When you are enrolled in a current or active Moodle unit as a coordinator or teacher, you will be enrolled in this unit within echo360. This will allow you to start capturing and uploading echo360 videos directly to your unit. Please watch the short video below which details the final steps to making sure you are ready to use echo360 in your units.
